Sculpture artists from across the nation were invited to participate in the 12th annual National Outdoor Sculpture Competition & Exhibition. Twelve sculptures by artists from seven states were juried into the exhibit. Awards for Best in Show, Outstanding Merit, and Honorable Mentions will be determined by the juror once all pieces are installed. Organized by the City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department and presented as a component of the annual North Charleston Arts Fest, this unique exhibition offers established and emerging artists the opportunity to display their inspiring and extraordinary sculptures throughout the picturesque North Charleston Riverfront Park, set along the banks of the Cooper River. An estimated 50,000 people visit this public park annually to enjoy the amenities located in the heart of the city’s arts community.
